Thrales Rapper
Rapper short sword dancers from Southwark; bringing culture and enlightenment to the congestion charge zone and beyond!

Coming on Saturday and Sunday

Spawned from the coal mines of South Middlesex in 1994, Thrales Rapper have developed their own unique form of London "knife crime". The club has a simple creed: Go fast, turn left, don't let go; Don't eat fruit (except in pies); Commit No Nuisance. The founding fathers of Thrales practiced in the Anchor pub in Southwark. The pub had once been part of Thrale & Co., a brewery owned by Henry and Hester Thrale (and later by Courage) which dominated Southwark until the 1980s. The First 9 sharpened their rapper skills in the Thrale Room for weeks under the watchful but silent gaze of Mrs Thrale. Our patron decided, the choice of team name was simple.
